Getting caught up

So much time has past since my last post. We came back to Idaho in November and have been crazy busy trying to catch up on all that has been neglected. So here goes a few months.....
The second week or so that we were home Rick and I went out to dinner and as we were going inside the Resturant I could tell that there was something very wrong. Rick stared blankly at me and lost all control of his legs. We got him sat down and I ask him if he thought something serious was going on he said it could be so we went to the E.R and they started running tests. After the results came back a doctor took me aside and said that the MRI looked bad and he thought we needed to get to the doctors in salt lake soon. We headed down and after looking things over the doctors agreed that it looked as if the cancer was spreading. The doctors suggested that we get a MRI of his spine as well as the brain. We did and it confirmed our worst fears that the cancer was spreading and that the previous treatments had not worked. We were told that Rick could start a new treatment that the doctors hope would buy him some more time. Rick agreed to the treatment. First treatment went well,but a week after Rick suffered a very severe seizure. We both were scared and I prayed out load as we held each other and I pleaded with the lord to help him through. We made it through and called the doctor they added some more anti seizure medication.Rick is right side impaired and the medication increased his weakness as well as made him sleep a lot. He is a amazing and is my rock he holds my hand each night while we sleep and wakes up each morning with a smile.


  1. Oh, Cindy. I cried for you both and the panic and pain that you must have felt. I love you, and will pray for peace for you both as you do this new treatment.

  2. Thank you for sharing. You strengthen us all.
